The Denver Art Museum (DAM) has debuted Natural Forces: Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington (on view to Sept. 7, 2020). The traveling exhibition, featuring 60 artworks, reveals connections between artistic themes and techniques used by these two acclaimed American artists. Born a generation apart, both artists succeeded in capturing the quintessential American spirit through works of art at the turn of the late-19th and early-20th centuries, an era of growing industrialization and notions of the closing of the American western frontier.
